Large number of rules conditions

Elliot Karlin 1 Reputation point

I want to create a rule that forwards a message if the subject line includes any of a large number of identifiers in a list (assuming the list includes a hundred different identifiers). The rules manager seems to only let you set them up individually (type in the first identifier, hit add, type the next identifier, hit add, etc.). Is there any way to add all of the conditions at once either through formatting or creating the rule offline and importing it?

    Hi @Elliot Karlin ,

    Welcome to our forum!

    According to your description, I have done a lot of research and testing on this, but I haven't found a convenient way to add all identifiers instantly. I'm afraid you still need to add it manually. Perhaps you need to use scripts and other methods to automate this requirement.

    That's pretty disappointing. Does anybody know of any workarounds? It should be something fairly easy for Outlook to do.
